north of harming peace and stability. the north's new young leader, kim jong-un, has been threatening to attack the south and the u.s. on an almost daily basis. angered by tough new u.s.-led sanctions that followed the third nuclear test in the north. he's also denounced routine u.s./south korean military exercises which included two nuclear capable b-2 stealth bombers. south koreans have become used to the threats from across the border, but the shear volume and violence of the recent rhetoric has people on edge. i'm very afraid and scared, says this woman. though younger south koreans largely shrug it off, this one saying there is a slim chance war will break out. many in the south are now focused on the operations of a vast industrial zone, in calsong, just across the dmz, where 124 south korean companies directly employ more than 50,000 north korean workers. it's a big source of foreign currency for the north. it's weathered many ups and downs in relations and is seen as a barometer of the north's intentions beyond the rhetoric. today the north threatened to shut it do
